Volcano Hunters!!

We knew our favorite Kilauea Volcano watchers Steve and Donna O’Meara were world famous in their field (and on Volcano World!), now National Geographic readers know them as well.

A video —recently posted on National Geographic’s Web site—features the couple and their team of “volcano commandos” traversing the slopes of Italy’s Stromboli volcano. The footage was shot in 2002 for a National Geographic Explorer film Volcano Chasers.

“Believe it or not, we were actually working on a daily basis INSIDE the active vents,” wrote Donna, by e-mail from Hawaii’s Big Island. “When we filmed, about four of them were going off. You never knew where to point your cameras!” Story credit: Hawaii Magazine.Com
